St Martin-in-the-Fields is a landmark. Its fine Georgian architecture and prominent location place it at the heart of the nation. Its work has valued historic tradition, but St Martin’s has always been innovative in response to changing needs. From London’s first free lending library to the first religious broadcast, St Martin’s has broken new ground in defining what it means to be a church. Solidifying its position for years to come, St Martin's has an award-winning cafe, puts on concerts with London's best musicians, and hosts fantastic events in its unique subterranean spaces.

Free lunchtime concerts take place every Monday, Tuesday and Friday, a fantastic way to hear both established and emerging stars of the classical scene.

As well as the fantastic food on offer in the Cafe in the Crypt, during the summer months St Martin's opens the Cafe in the Courtyard, offering a host of al fresco delights.

My wife and I booked as The Four Seasons is one of our favourites. We took a couple who had no interest in classical music but wanted to see for themselves what all the fuss was about. We arrived and they soon began to get in the mood due to the church itself. At the intermission, we had drinks downstairs... More

But the concerts are fantastic! We get front row seats to be able to watch the conductor and excellent musicians. Pay a pound for a cushion because the wooden seats get uncomfortable. The free lunchtime concerts are a real gift.

I went to St. Martins for a candlelight concert (Vivaldi) but discovered it also has a pretty good cafe, shop and brass-rubbing place in the crypt. You can come a couple of hours early for the concert and find plenty to nourish and beguile you. You sit in wooden pews for the concert but can rent a cushion for one... More

Fab venue and brilliant concert. Had a really lovely evening down in the Crypt at St Martins. Great shop and cafe too. Has a real sense of local community in an amazing space and great to see it being optimised.

After a visit to the National Gallery, we crossed the street and saw the free concert program for 1 pm that day. The Youth Music Center played excellent music from Mendelsohn, Albioni, and Peter Heidrich in the church main hall. The free concert was at 1pm and finished about 1:45 pm due to several requests for encores. Excellent work by... More

Visited with my 13 year old son. Brilliant - I thought, great performance by talented youths, and conducted admirably by Nigel Goldberg previously with the national philharmonic orchestra. Played Mendelssohn's Sinfonia in C minor, Albinoni's Adagio for strings and Peter Heidrich's happy birthday variations. My son thought: ok. But enjoyed listening to it whilst reading his book in a great... More

Walking by on our way to the tube and happened to see this concert advertised outside so we decided to pop in. They had tickets left and we were just in time to take our seats. What an absolute treat! An inspirational performance by the New London Singers conducted by Ivor Setterfield. The inside of the church is both beautiful... More
